    This past weekend I was up at my parents farm house. My dad had shot at a skunk with his .22 pistol the weekend before. They have an old united van lines trailer for storage. When I was up there we found a hole in it from that shooting. It had bounced off of the ground (from the hole you could tell it came in sideways and there was no way he would of shot that high) then went through the steel shell of the trailer then through the 1x12 wood inside then through 8 peices of heavy cardboard and finally lodged in the other side of the trailer. I knew a .22 was bad about bouncing but had no idea it still had that much force behind it. One round that went through anouther barn barely missed my old truck that was stored there.

    Sometime you start to think of a .22 as a weak cartridge or even a toy although it is still gun and has such a large amount of force behind it. It is amazing at what things so small can do.
